Travel Clinic & Holiday Vaccinations

It is important to have vaccines as early as possible – at least 8/10 weeks before you travel.

If you require any Non-NHS travel vaccines relating to foreign travel you need to visit a TRAVEL VACCINE PROVIDER eg Boots Bloomfield, Kerrsland (Masta), 352 travel or University health at Queens. 

You can check which vaccines you require for travel at NHS fitfortravel, or NATHNAC.

Please note only the undernoted vaccines which we administer are available on NHS Prescriptions:-

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Polio

Healthy Travel Leaflet

You may find the following leaflet helpful when making your travel arrangements.

Malaria

Malaria is a serious tropical disease spread by mosquitoes. If it isn’t diagnosed and treated promptly, it can be fatal.

A single mosquito bite is all it takes for someone to become infected.

Please download our useful leaflet on Mosquito Advice

Hepatitis immunisation

Immunisation against infectious Hepatitis (Hepatitis A) is available free of charge on the NHS in connection with travel abroad. However Hepatitis B is not routinely available free of charge and therefore you may be charged for this vaccination when requested in connection with travel abroad.

Private Travel Clinics

If you are unable to wait for our next available travel advice appointment, as advised by the reception staff, then you can attend any Private Travel Clinic (you can obtain these numbers in the Yellow Pages see link below i.e. type in “travel clinic” then “your area”, to display a list of clinics) charges will apply at these clinics.
